Kandi Steiner has a way with words. All of her stories have an impact on me, and Revelry is no exception. It made think about my life and I think it’s a book that a lot of people can relate to. Trying to balance life, dreams, goals, relationships etc isn’t always easy to do, but for Wren Ballard it was more difficult than most. Because she had a husband who wasn’t supportive of her wants and dreams.

After that relationship ended, Wren was in a funk. She needed some time to get aw

I finished Revelry and then sat for an hour. ONE WHOLE HOUR deciding how I would sum up the reading experience. Asking myself how to fully encapsulate everything that is Revelry. So, after taking inspiration from the book, I opened Google and looked for good description words. Through my search I came across:

“arousing awe through being impressive or formidable.”

This lead me to look at impressive and formidable…

“evoking admiration through size, quality, or skill; grand,

For my unfiltered reviews...

Look, I didn’t love this one but I didn’t hate it. I just didn’t really like it. I really didn’t like the main character, Wren. She was blah…..

If you looking for a simple story line then Revelry by Kandi Steiner will work. Just know that it doesn’t measure up to A Love Letter to Whiskey by Kandi Steiner. Two different Kandi’s wrote these books. There was the great writer and then came the mediocre writer.

"For the first time in my life, I was owed nothing, and I owed nothing. Lonely or not, I was free."

Kandi Steiner has fast become one of my favorite authors. I fell in love with her when I read Weightless and continued that love affair when I picked up A Love Letter to Whiskey. And now she's done it once again with Revelry. Kandi has such a distinct way of telling a story. It sinks its claws inside you and pulls you in completely. I felt like Wren and Anderson's story was intoxicating and I lov

having a ready insight into and understanding of things.

I think it’s pretty much given that Kandi Steiner has established herself as an author who has this tremendous gift in storytelling. In all honesty, she slays you with her lyrical prose, flawed characters, and raw emotions. So after reading my first Steiner book, A Love Letter To Whiskey, in which I highly recommend, I instantly became a fan of

I absolutely love Kandi Steiner’s books and from the first moment I read ‘A Love Letter to Whiskey’ I was hooked on this amazing author. Her poignant and profound writing always moves me and she has fast become a one click author for me. ‘Revelry’ was a highly anticipated read for me and it did not disappoint. I loved this story purely for the journey she led me on; the journey of taking pause and reflecting on the past and the associated self-discovery that it brought. If you are looking for a

"This is old man Ron. Don't be offended if he grunts at you a lot and never smiles. He's as soft as a baby duck, but he doesn't want anyone to know it."

Ron humphed and I giggled.

"Ron served in the Navy for twenty-nine years," Momma Von added.

"Wow, thank you for your service."

He humphed again, reaching into his plaid shirt pocket for a cigarette.

This is only my third Kandi Steiner book that I've read but I already count her as a favorite author. Her words have this sweet melody that has continuously made me smile throughout all of her stories abd Revelry was no different than what I was expecting. These broken characters made my heart hurt in the best way possible but it was Wren's character that really did me in. She surprised me because I actually connected to her in a really strong way. W
